COP26 event - Cities, Regions and Built Environment Day
Place: German Pavilion
Time: 11:30 - 13:00 GMT
We need to acknowledge that a global turnaround for the buildings and construction sector is as important and necessary as never before. How we shape the built environment first and foremost in our cities and metropolitan areas is key to reach global climate and social development goals.
How can we shape and thereby achieve the transformation in the construction sector? How can we prominently place this topic in the public discussion of climate protection?
This event will display and discuss the relevance, challenges and potentials of climate protection in transforming the urban buildings and construction sector with the German Development Cooperation (GDC) and partners from ministries, UN networks and urban think tanks from the Global South as well as Germany. This event will mark the starting point of co-operation for the successful implementation of two new BMZ support initiatives in the field of sustainable construction in cities.
